Snickers Candy Bar

This recipe actually came from a diet recipe blog. Each bar/serving has 200 calories just in case you wanted to know, but you'd think it had so much more. These literally taste like a cold Snickers candy bar.

Snickers Candy Bar

3/4 cup crunchy of creamy peanut butter (I used crunchy)
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme
1/4 cup butter
1 (14 ounce) package caramels
1 1/2 cups salted or unsalted peanuts, chopped
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Melt together 1 cup milk chocolate chips, 1/4 cup butterscotch chips, and 1/4 cup peanut butter. Spread this mixture on the bottom of a 9  x 13 cake pan and put in the refrigerator or freezer to set up while the next layer is prepared.
Boil together the butter, sugar, and evaporated milk for about 5 min. Take off the stove add the marshmallow creme, 1/4 cup peanut butter, vanilla, and peanuts. Pour over the first layer that was chilling, then place back in the freezer.
Melt the caramels with the whipping cream until smooth, then pour over the second layer that is chilling; place back in the freezer. 
Melt together the remaining peanut butter, milk chocolate chips, and butterscotch chips, then spread on the top of the third layer in the pan. Return to chill until set up. Refrigerator them after.
